Chief Wood, 66, had over 40 years in law enforcement and had been with Constable’s office since 2004. Chief Wood was a Navy Veteran from The Vietnam Era and had also been with the Texas Department of Public Safety as a Trooper before coming to Precinct 5. Chief Wood was a resident of Tomball where he lived with his wife of 44 years. Chief Wood will be dearly missed by his Montgomery County Precinct 5 Family and residents of Precinct 5.

PUBLISHER'S NOTE: I first met Dave Wood, Trooper Wood back in the mid- 70’s. I was shooting television news and at that time we were still on 16mm. I also carried a 35mm with me at all times (yes the kind that shot Fuji film). Back then Troopers didn’t even carry cameras, they depended on people like myself, Loyd Overcash and Richard Searls to come to the scene and shoot the photos for them. Many time I would get a call in the middle of the night from Dave Wood,David Hill, Charlie Rogers, Mike Powell, Boyd Preckwinkle, Cheryl Steadman, J.J. Jordan  and and not to forget the two people on that radio K.B. Hallmark and Loretta to always told them where to go and had a knack for waking me in the middle of the night to make a scene. When Wood left DPS he went to work with David Hill, Constable of Precinct 5. The entire time I knew Dave he was a fine Trooper, always there when officer or citizen needed him. He would always go out of his way to help someone. I remember a fatal crash on Dobbin-Huffsmith where a pickup lost control in a curve and the young driver crashed into a tree. He went to notify the family and only the young man’s mother was there. His father was several hours away. Wood sat with the grieving mother counseling her until her husband arrived home. I remember the time long ago he introduced me to his brother who owned Woody’s Smokehouse in Centerville. It was a meal I would not forget and the meat we brought home lasted a week. Dave you will be missed. You and your family are in my prayers.
